When digging for relics, the finds are not only coins, but also different relics and personal items, like buttons and crucifixes worn around the neck. It seems that people used to love to fight, have a good party, or simply maybe the rope just broke and the crucifix fell off.

The New 13″ Karma DD-Coil (Cockroach Vs. Spider)

Finally i received my long-awaited upgrade to my Fisher F75 – a huge 13-inch DD-coil. And the size of the thing! The look of the box and the coil deserve all five stars. The shape is round and quite stylish, it kind of resembles spider legs. The coil has a remarkable bolt fastener. You turn the bolt until it clicks, and then it stands in its place. This kind of fixation prevents the bolt...

Digging Silver With The Fisher F75 (Photos+)

A Tsar silver coin is a quite rare find. More often we come across local Livonian, Swedish and Polish-Lithuanian silver coins. As a rule, they have a slightly larger size.
